wrong strut!?

yeah, so i was replacing my rear driver side strut on my 02 sedan. i snagged a strut at the local junkyard, i was told it was the rear driver side strut. so i bought it, brought it home and swapped the spring and got ready to put it back in. upon trying to fit the strut back onto my car, i noticed something... the brake clip was facing the wrong direction. i thought about how thats odd and than realized the guy gave me a strut for the rear passenger side!!! so now, i have to wonder... will the strut be interchangeable so i can use this strut, or will it totally f up my car? i have a feeling it wont work, but i figured i should get some other peoples advice.

All the struts are designed to only work on one corner of the car. If I remember correctly they might even have a stamping on them telling you which corner they go on.
